What Makes This Change a Different One: How Google+ Could Kill Google Search Business

What Makes This Change a Different One: How Google+ Could Kill Google Search Business | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

Nathan Safran writes at Search Engine Watch:

"There have been numerous instances in the past where users have been up in arms about the latest Google change, insisting they were moving on to other search engines.

 

Panda, while painful for many publishers ultimately proved itself to improve search results relevancy.

 

Google Instant and Preview brought with them cries of "SEO is Dead!" and vows to move on to greener pastures. All the while the needle hasn't budged on Google's market share.

 

But what makes this time different is this is the first time the credibility of their core search results are being called into question.

 

Without question, social is an important part of how online users will consume and spread quality content.

 

But it has to be integrated in a manner that doesn't degrade core search functionality, or worse, sully searcher trust in what is still the most utilized search engine in the world.

 

Because this, more than anything Google's core competitors can do to them, could prove itself to be the tossed pebble that brings the mighty giant to its knees."

 

Interesting, informative. 8/10

How To Integrate Facebook, Twitter And Google+ In WordPress

How To Integrate Facebook, Twitter And Google+ In WordPress | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

Integrating social media services in your website design is vital if you want to make it easy for readers to share your content. While some users are happy with the social media buttons that come built into their design template, the majority of WordPress users install a plugin to automatically embed sharing links on their pages. Many of you will find that a plugin does exactly what you need; others not so much. Some are poorly coded, and most include services that you just don’t need. And while some great social media plugins are out there, they don’t integrate with every WordPress design.

 

If you aren’t comfortable editing your WordPress templates, a plugin is probably the best solution. If you are comfortable making a few edits to your theme, then consider manually integrating social media so that you have more control over what services appear on your website.

Twitter Makes Two Major Announcements

Twitter Makes Two Major Announcements | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

Twitter is the second biggest social network after Facebook. Its growth has accelerated after it was embedded in the new Apple mobile operating suystem (iOS5).

Despite its popularity, its user experience is not as inviting or as multimedia rich as Facebook and Google+.

 

Since the launch of Twitter over 5 years ago, users have moved on from a “text” web and are demanding more visual and multimedia centric content.


You only have to notice the fast trending popularity of “Infographics” to realize that the social web requires information presented efficiently and visually with high definition images and media...

Create RSS Feeds for Any User or Search Query on Google+: Feed+

Create RSS Feeds for Any User or Search Query on Google+: Feed+ | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are looking for a way to create RSS feeds from Google profile listings and Google+ searches, here is a working solution: Feed+ for Google Chrome.

 

Feed+ supports two different types of feeds:

 

a) Public user feeds: this turns all public messages of a selected user on Google Plus and turns it into an RSS feed. To create the feed, you either need to enter the profile ID which you find on the public profile page on Google+, or the full profile url.

 

b) Search results: this creates an RSS feed from a selected search term. It combines all public posts that include the search phrase.

 

Go get it here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/eaiadkmgpppkonfodnepmoknpaphnlij?utm_source=labnol.org

 

(Alternative tool: Google Plus Feed)

5 Ways Writers Can Break Out of the Tired Old Social Media Box

5 Ways Writers Can Break Out of the Tired Old Social Media Box | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

The social media world is changing daily. In other words, we must be alert and aware of the new tools that could support us in our approach. This interesting article speaks about some "new" tools that can also help us to go towards to success. [note Martin Gysler]

 

It’s time to teach that old dog some new tricks.

 

That old dog I’m referring to is social media.

 

Sure, you’re already blogging, and on Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Facebook, and more. Great.

 

But I’m telling you — there’s more to social media than meets the eye. The final chapter on social media hasn’t been written.

 

When I kicked off my writing business in April, I decided to use social media my way.

 

I approached these overused networks as if I’d never heard of them. I made my own rules. I set different expectations. You could say I wrote my own chapter on social media marketing.

Screen-Sharing Comes To Google+ Hangouts

Screen-Sharing Comes To Google+ Hangouts | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

If you were waiting for Google to release a screen-sharing feature inside the Hangout real-time collaboration platform, that time has come.

 

In the next 48 hours Google will be rolling out to all Google+ users the ability to screen-share during any hangout session.

 

From Christopher Johnson G+ post: "When we launched Hangouts with Extras last September, we wanted to test new features and get feedback from users.

 

We’ve learned a lot over the past few months, and today we’re rolling out a new Hangouts look and feel that incorporates some of the “extras,” and better reflects Google’s overall design ( http://goo.gl/gG1NA ).

 

Highlights include:

 

- Screensharing: share what’s on your computer screen with everyone in the hangout. This is the first of many extras we’re graduating to Hangouts proper.

 

- Bigger video: we’ve put more emphasis on the live video itself by optimizing white space and other screen elements."
